Planning the wedding of your dreams begins with finding the wedding dress of your dreams. When you envision yourself walking down the aisle, what kind of dress do you picture? Coco Chanel?
What colour is your dream dress—white, cream, ecru or maybe pink? Do you prefer lace, satin, or silk? Do you picture a short dress or a long ball gown? Each element of your dress, along with all the embellishments and accessories, contributes to the overall look you want to achieve with every detail adding character. Whether you love delicate details such as lace flowers and organza butterflies, or you prefer to add a statement piece like a fur stole, a Chanel inspired pearl necklace or a feather neckpiece, give your look a personal touch through the details. Beaded rose buds and crystal clusters, decorative necklines and sparkly waistlines define the modern gown.
Princess-style gowns exude romantic allure as they continue to influence the wedding scene. Fabrics are airy and light—organza, silk, chanel tulle and lace offer a feminine touch that looks and feels as enchanting as a dream. Styled with ruffles and layers, wedding dresses emphasize fluidity and fashion. While brides can choose to bring out their personality through sophisticated designs like a strapless ball gown or a lace mermaid dress, they also have several other options to help define them. A lavender or emerald coloured dress is sure to make a statement. A cream coloured dress with a black sash, coupled with black gloves, has its own “je ne sais quoi” effect. Some dresses are long and others are short or tea length. Some gowns have full skirts with pronounced crinolines while others hug the body gently. One thing they all have in common is their power to evoke feelings—true romance and fascination—by way of the most beguiling essentials: intriguing details!
Incredible details such as flower appliques or beautiful lacy blooms come in every colour and style. They decorate dresses, from gracefully sparkly to rich and bold, and add a three-dimensional effect. Using rhinestones, pearls or crystals, wedding gowns dazzle with romance. Another fascinating detail worth noting is the neckline. This defining feature affects the entire look of your dress. The sweetheart, the scooped and deep V-necklines draw attention to the upper torso. While charming and feminine, consider what type of jewellery will suit this style. One-shouldered styles are a flattering way to reveal your trendy side. And, among the many fascinating details to take note of when shopping for your wedding dress are low-cut backs with focus on the back of the gown. Some are elaborately decorated with thin chains, ribbons or netted fabric embroidered with flowers. This makes an ideal pick if you want to wear your hair up.
Whether the focus is mainly in the front or the back of the dress, each detail will affect your hair style, your accessories and the overall look you want to achieve. Select the wedding gown of your dreams by choosing one that brings out your personality and style while enhancing your best features. Savour every moment of this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Have fun, explore, try on different styles, ask for guidance from the experts and enjoy.
